Probably that you shouldn't go into debt. Although, the first time I read it I thought it was about borrowing your neighbor's stuff.

Default Anyone else remember this one?

After taking many minutes to solve this one for the second time I decided I'd better commit it to memory.

Default The Unsolvable

Occasionally, I just can't solve a puzzle. I know you can just click on Play and get another puzzle, but how/where can I get the solution to the 'unsolvable'?

you can run it by other players here in the forum--or in the chat box--or if you know the author, try looking up that person on some quote sites. (there's no way to get it from the game itself.) just print it out and work on it at your leisure!
